Contest News

ScreenCraft Names Action/Thriller Contest Winner

Get It Together by Matthew Ryan has been selected as the Grand Prize Winner of the 2017 ScreenCraft Action & Thriller Screenplay Contest. A clever, endlessly entertaining and surprisingly funny bank robbery thriller, Get It Together centers on a "charming no-hoper" who, flat broke and desperate to buy a home, uses all the skills he's learned from his robbery expert cop ex-girlfriend to rob a bank – only to have his robbery interrupted by a bigger, more professional band of thieves.

Milwaukee by Barry P. Ambrose & Christopher Stapleton has been awarded the Runner-Up prize. Ambitious, evocative and narratively complex, the script is a neo-noir set in the 1950s that tells the story of a hard-as-nails cop who finds himself protecting the widow of a recently slain officer, and in the process uncovering a far-reaching conspiracy involving the mob, the police department and the local government.

Ryan will receive $1,500 and hand-picked industry introductions. Ambrose & Stapleton will receive $500 and will have their script circulated to ScreenCraft's network of agents, managers, producers and studio execs, as will the following finalist scripts:

  • Bury Your Dead by Richard McGovern
  • Danger Close by Adam Skelter
  • The Iron Horse of Lucy Steele by Paul Zeidman
  • A Word In A Glass Mind by Miranda Fennimore
  • 17 Bullets by Van Jensen
  • The Caretaker by Hussain Pirani
  • Pawns by Erik Lowe
  • Running Dark by John Lau
